Taxis There are about 10 taxi services offered in Oxford, and while prices vary, the ease and convenience is worth the price. Taxi services include Angel Taxi, Austin Taxi, Rebel Taxi, and Oxford Taxi, among a few others. Simply google “list of taxis in Oxford, MS” and a list, along with the number for the taxi service will appear. Prices may vary but are usually about $10 per person. The City Council sets acceptable rates for the taxi services to prevent price-gouging on Ole Miss game day weekends.
Uber Uber has entered the Oxford community for the second time in the past few years. Under a new Mississippi law, Uber has been available in Oxford for a year or so now.
Apartment Shuttles There are a few apartment complexes in Oxford that provide free shuttles to and from The Square on weekends for their residents. This option is very convenient for students given the cost efficiency. Who doesn’t love a free ride? Locations that offer this service are The Hub, Highland Square and The Retreat, just in case you’re all out of money for transportation.
Highland Square offers free shuttles on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, and runs from 9 p.m. until an hour after the bars close.

One-Stop Fun Shop: Treehouse Toys Owner Jennifer Kincaid Has an “Eagle Eye” for Gifts That Kids Love
By Steve Vassallo | Images Courtesy of Treehouse Toys
reehouse Toys, located next to Coyote Blues at 1201 Merchants Drive, is a storehouse of new and exciting toys. Primarily focused on infants through age 15, the store even carries a few items for adults. Owner Jennifer Kincaid says one gift idea for the adults is the Norman Rockwell jigsaw puzzle, which challenges older generations with pieces numbering up to 1,000. Treehouse is gearing up for Christmas with toys for younger customers. The Chameleon Racer, priced at $29.99, is a battery-operated car (manufactured by Mindscope) that changes colors depending on the track it’s running on. Th is new technological breakthrough 20 | Sign up for Daily Headlines from hottytoddy.com

tree this December is the Karaoke Microphone. Th is wireless handheld device, priced at $49.99, functions for eight hours of musical pleasure and is manufactured by Funky Rico. Kids can also choose from an array of high-quality doll houses, priced between $149 and $309 and made by KidKraft. The larger houses can accommodate 18inch doll sizes such as the American Girl doll. These houses can handle up to five dolls. Treehouse Toys showcases a diverse inventory with items such as art supplies; stuffed animals, including bears, rabbits and lions; costumes and hats; games and books; temporary tattoos; sleeping bags; costume jewelry; face paint sets; and all types of dolls.
Kincaid opened Treehouse Toys in its current location last December. To bring to Oxford the newest toys on the marketplace today, she routinely attends trade shows such as the North American Toy Fair in New York City and America’s Mart in Atlanta. Another prime example of her “eagle eye” is a Plush Winged Dragon (made by Melissa & Doug) that sells for $99.99. The colorful toy would make a beautiful addition to any playroom. While visiting Treehouse Toys, I kept looking around to see if Peter Pan would jump off a shelf or appear out of one of the displays. He never did, but Peter was about all that I failed to find!

Charley Ann Nix: A Q& A with Miss University By Julia Chisolm
rom the Miss Teen Sweet Potato Queen to Ole Miss’ Miss University, Charley Ann Nix set a course for pageant success early in life. With a new title on her sash, she also has plans to improve the Ole Miss community by educating school kids about bullying. Julia Chisolm sat down to speak to her on behalf of Experience Oxford: EO: When and where you born? Nix: I was born on July 23, 1996, in Batesville, Mississippi, and I have lived there my whole life. EO: How old were you when you fi rst started competing in pageants? Nix: The fi rst pageant I competed in was at the age of six, but I didn’t compete again until I was older. I went

to Vicksburg to support my cousin, who competed in Miss Mississippi when I was 10, and ever since then I’ve been hooked. EO: What pageants have you competed in throughout your career? Nix: When I was 11 years old, I started to participate in the Outstanding Teen Program. The very fi rst one I competed in, I got fi rst runner-up, which motivated me to keep competing. I kept working hard, and I was eventually named Batesville’s Teen Miss Springfest (twice), Miss Teen Sweet Potato Queen, and the Mid-South Fair’s Miss Youth Personality. When I turned 15, I began preparing to compete in a local pageant that would give me the chance to compete in Miss Mississippi’s Outstanding Teen. In October of 2011, I was named Miss Delta Blues Outstanding Teen. Visit hottytoddy.com for news, arts, sports and fun! | 25
EO: How has competing in pageants affected your lifestyle?
EO: What is your favorite part of pageants?
Nix: I became dedicated to getting in shape and eating right. Iâ€™d always had a less curvy body type, but I had to learn how to work out in a gym. I am not athletic, so I do not enjoy cardio, but I do like to lift light weights. Regarding my diet, I have always liked to eat more on the healthy side, but I love bread. It is hard to stay away from Cracker Barrel and Ajax, but I learned to monitor my intake on those carb-heavy types of food. Being toned and healthy is important because that is what the judges look for in the swimwear segment.
Nix: My favorite part is the interview because it allows the judges to get to know the person you are on the inside. It creates an opportunity to have your knowledge and character seen. Th is is my favorite part of competition because it goes beneath the surface level of someone. We all have this chance to get more personal with our judges in a 10-minute panel interview prior to competing onstage. I believe this portion of the competition can sometimes be forgotten because it is not seen by the public.
EO: What is your least favorite part about competing in pageants? Nix: My least favorite part is how stressful competing is. Pageants are hard, and you have to be OK with being vulnerable while putting your best out on stage and hoping five people will like it. 26 | Sign up for Daily Headlines from hottytoddy.com
EO: Did you feel good enough about your performance during the Miss University Pageant to think you would win? Nix: Honestly, I did not think I was going to win. I walked out of my private interview and cried in my car because I thought I did so poorly. I was not at all confident going into the onstage part of competition, but I knew I had to give it 110% because I did not think I did well in my interview. During the preliminary award segment, I actually won the Overall Interview Award, and I was shocked. At that point, I told myself that if that was the only award I received, I would be okay and happy with it. When my name was called [as the overall winner], I genuinely was shocked and excited at the same time. I just thanked the judges over and over again and looked at my family out in the audience. EO: Have your family and friends always been supportive of you? Nix: I luckily have always been supported by my family and friends throughout my pageant career. When I was younger, I was picked on for competing, but I was able to overlook it because I knew what the bigger goals of mine were. EO: Do you have any advice to other pageant contestants? Nix: It’s easy to get down and feel defeated when you don’t win, but you have to remember that at the end of the day, it is just five people’s opinions. There’s always another chance, and I think that being able to pick yourself up and keep going really shows someone’s true character. The way
that you act and carry yourself when you’ve lost is the most opportune time to witness someone’s real self. EO: What is your plan to improve the Ole Miss community as Miss University? Nix: I will absolutely continue to work with and expand my platform, which is a bullying prevention program titled, “Don’t Wait, Educate,” which targets elementary school-age students. I hope to reach around 5,000 students before the end of this school year, and I have already gotten started by booking appearances. Because there isn’t a “Miss Oxford” or “Miss Lafayette County,” I will hopefully be able to help integrate the Lafayette, Oxford, and University communities by promoting my platform and participating in events like the Big Event. I am so thrilled to be heading back to Vicksburg and having the chance to serve Ole Miss over the next year. I hope to make every past, present and future Rebel feel special and a part of the Ole Miss family.

of a Kind Sistrunk Triplets Get Inducted into Phi Kappa Phi Honor Society By Christina Steube
he University of Mississippi chapter of Phi Kappa Phi honor society inducted 270 new members Sunday (Oct. 29), including three juniors from the same family. Ann Weston, Katherine and Will Sistrunk, triplets from Springfield, Missouri, were inducted into the most selective interdisciplinary honor society at the university. All three are members of the Sally McDonnell Barksdale Honors College. “The invitation to be a member of Phi Kappa Phi is a great accomplishment and it is especially exciting to be inducted with my siblings, as I owe much of my success to the guidance and support of Katherine and Will,” Ann Weston said. Ann Weston is a public policy leadership major and is seeking minors in Spanish and intelligence and security studies. She plans to pursue a career in global health policy upon completion of graduate school. Also a public policy leadership major and a pre-nursing student, Katherine is minoring in Spanish and society and health. She wants to combine her love for public policy with a career in a healthrelated field. Will is majoring in biology and pursuing minors in chemistry and society and health. He plans to attend medical school after graduating from Ole Miss.

“Being nominated for Phi Kappa Phi is an awesome honor and reward for me academically,” Will said. “It also is a reflection of the great opportunities I have had at Ole Miss, from advising in the Honors College to meeting with professors who are always willing to help. I am excited for all that Phi Kappa Phi has to offer.” To receive an invitation to join Phi Kappa Phi, juniors must have completed at least 72 credit hours and rank in the top 7.5 percent of their class. All three made the cut. Deb Wenger, Phi Kappa Phi chapter president and assistant dean for partnerships and innovation in the Meek School of Journalism and New Media, said this is the first time she is aware of triplets inducted into any chapter of Phi Kappa Phi. The Sistrunks come from an Ole Miss family. Their parents, William and Camille Sistrunk, are university alumni and Mississippi natives, and when it came to the three choosing a college, UM was always a consideration. “As we were considering colleges, we initially had varying ideas on where we wanted to go and what we wanted to study,” Katherine said. “At first, I thought it was a definite possibility that we would end up at different schools. But, as we continued to visit other universities, Ole Miss kept calling us back.
“Ever since we were little, we have called Mississippi our second home. Ole Miss has brought us friendships and memories, and we ultimately chose Ole Miss because it was not only where our family went to school, but because it felt like home.” UM was where the three siblings felt most comfortable and could each pursue the major of their choice. “We are all very close but independent and different in our own ways, and it was a great thing that we each decided Ole
Miss was the right place for each of us,” Katherine said. “Aside from Ole Miss having so many outstanding academic and extracurricular opportunities in which to participate, choosing Ole Miss was like coming home, and I couldn’t imagine what my college experience would have been like without my family by my side.” But it wasn’t just the culture and the legacy aspect that drew them in. The Sistrunks said the scholarships offered through Ole Miss were the most generous of any institution to which they applied. “Ole Miss has been everything we expected and much more in providing an excellent academic environment in which our kids are thriving, and we are
very grateful for that,” the triplets’ father, William, said. “We are excited that they are planting roots in Mississippi.” The university has since allowed each of them to academically perform to the best of their abilities. “I am motivated to achieve by the desire to one day be able to be a successful professional and say that I am an alumni of the University of Mississippi, and with that, hopefully give back to the university that has given me so much,” Ann Weston said.
Ultimately, their independent achievements allowing them to come together in Phi Kappa Phi has made the family closer than ever. “To me, my sisters being at the same college has been a great resource and comfort,” Will said. “I wouldn’t be where I am now without them. However, I know wherever they go, they will succeed.” Their mother, Camille, agrees. “My husband and I are very proud of Ann Weston, Katherine and Will,” she said. “We are very blessed that they are happy and healthy kids and students who have always academically challenged themselves and each other.” Visit hottytoddy.com for news, arts, sports and fun! | 31

Every Picture Tells a Story Folk historian John Cofield mines Oxford’s rich past in his first book
s Oxford’s preeminent folk historian, John Cofield is practiced in the distinctly Southern art of storytelling, but he doesn’t need a porch and a rocking chair to pull a crowd. For the past six years, he’s used Facebook—and a stunning collection of photographs that depict the people and places of his home town’s rich and colorful past. Now Cofield, the scion of one of Oxford’s most illustrious families, has taken on a more traditional medium with the publication of his new book, a pictorial history titled “Oxford, Mississippi: The Cofield Collection.” Cofield is the son of the renowned University of Mississippi photographer, Jack Cofield, and grandson of J.R. “Colonel” Cofield, who was William Faulkner’s personal photographer as well as the photographer for the Ole Miss

yearbook for many years. Cofield said “the seed for (the book) was planted” after he created a Facebook account in 2011. “I began to post Cofield photographs from decades gone by, and the reaction from today's Oxford was almost overwhelming,” he said. “Having grown up with these photographs on the studio walls and in boxes and drawers at home had led to my brother Glenn and I taking them for granted in a way.” But his Facebook friends couldn’t get enough of them. “The instant, positive responses online from all walks of Oxford life made it obvious that the interest was there, and it was strong,” he said. Before long, HottyToddy.com and Experience Oxford publisher Ed Meek sought Cofield’s help in building up the site’s Facebook page, “If You Love Oxford and Ole Miss,” on which Cofield shared more Visit hottytoddy.com for news, arts, sports and fun! | 33
of the photos, much to the delight of the account’s followers.
In addition to his own family’s pictures, “Oxford, Mississippi: The Cofield Collection” features photos from multiple local sources, including the Dain, Meek and Leslie collections. Archie Manning, Miss America 1960 Lynda Lee Mead, James Meredith, a young and glamorous Patricia Lamar, and, of course, Faulkner himself make appearances in the book, alongside old men whiling away the hours on benches and playing dominoes on the Courthouse lawn.
Fans flocked to Cofield’s personal Facebook page, too; his friends list has topped out at Facebook’s maximum allowed number of 5,000. And, some of them had old photos of their own to share. “When old Oxford families began scanning and emailing their family photos, I was onto something,” Cofield recalls. “As the collection grew larger and larger, I knew that an ever-increasing number of the photos were solid gold for old and new Oxford alike. At the same time, Ed was constantly encouraging me to write stories about Oxford's and Ole Miss's history. He (often said) reading my stories reminded him of my grandfather's stories from his Oxford days. Ed pushed me harder at times than I wanted to be pushed. Now I am more than grateful for the practical education he was determined to give me.” Meek said he was happy to play a role in getting the book Cofield gets a kiss from Kaye Hooker Bryant at a Square Books event. off the ground. “John’s grandfather, Colonel J.R. Cofield, was my mentor at age 22, and his father, Jack, was my coworker and best friend for 30 years,” Meek noted. “John is an absolutely wonderful storyteller from a long line of Cofields, who certainly passed down this great gift in his genes. He has created a unique history of this area, perhaps unequaled anywhere else, through photos, interviews and contacts with people who love Oxford and have an attachment to this community." Meek added, "What makes ‘The Cofield Collection’ unique is the heart, soul and love of community that’s seen on each page. It’s awesome and has been years in the making." 34 | Sign up for Daily Headlines from hottytoddy.com
The text, meanwhile, relates Oxford’s history as seen through the author’s eyes, told in Cofield’s own unique voice. “My book is based on my childhood and teenage years in Oxford,” Cofield says. “The story line is me traveling around town, stopping at the places I loved as a child. I might be on horseback with General Grant riding down North Lamar in 1862, or riding my bike around the Square in 1970, or walking with William Faulkner back to Rowan Oak after the 1949 world premiere of ‘Intruder in the Dust.’ At many stops, I take the reader through the site's history from pre-Civil War until today.”

On Cooking Make a Southern: Date with These Holiday Goodies By Laurie Triplette Considered out of fashion for a generation of Americans, the lowly date is coming back into favor as globalization of cuisines influences our culinary tastes. It is one food that deserves to become popular – dates, with their natural sugar content, guarantee any dish containing them to be delicious. Try these date-laden recipes and I’ll bet you become a fan like me.
DATE FACTS FOR HOME COOKS • One cup of dates has 400 calories, 27 percent of recommended daily potassium and 48 percent of daily fiber needs.
• Fresh dates usually have been left on the palm long enough to fully ripen and begin to dry.
• Dates provide zinc, iron, copper, magnesium, calcium and other minerals; they also contain antioxidants called polyphenols – all disease-fighting components.
• They may be stored at room temperature or tightly covered in the fridge.
• Very few people are allergic to dates, which, while high in natural sugars, have a low glycemic index. 44 | Sign up for Daily Headlines from hottytoddy.com
• The longer a date is dried, the more intense the sugar; the white spots or white fi lm on dried dates are sugars that have leached to the surface. These dates are okay to eat.
Mom's Billy Goat Cookies For pufďŹ er cookies, substitute vegetable shortening for half the butter (1/2 cup of each). Do not overbeat after adding the flour. Fold in the cherries at the end. 1 c. cold unsalted butter 1 1/2 c. sugar 3 egg yolks 1 tsp. vanilla extract 2-1/2 c. pre sifted plain flour 1 tsp baking soda 1/8 tsp. salt 1 tsp. cinnamon 1/4 tsp. cloves 2 T. buttermilk 1 c. chopped nuts (I use roasted, salted pecans) 1 c. chopped dates 1/2 to 1 c. halved, red candied cherries
Blend butter, sugar, egg yolks, and vanilla on medium speed 2-3 minutes. Sift dry ingredients together three times. Add to wet batter. Do NOT over beat. Blend in the milk and fold in the nuts, dates and cherries. Drop on cookie sheet lined with parchment paper by the teaspoon. Bake at 325ÂşF in preheated oven about 12-15 minutes. Cool on rack. Store in sealed metal container.

Classic Date Bars I believe this recipe originally was developed by Betty Crocker in the 1950s. It is the recipe I made when sending boxes of goodies to Hubby and his battalion in Kuwait and Iraq during Operation Desert Storm. These bars remain intact and safe to eat during temperature extremes! 3 c. chopped pitted dates 1/4 c. white granulated sugar 1 1/2 c. water or orange juice 1/3 c. coarse chopped walnuts, optional 1-1/4 c. all purpose flour 1 tsp. table salt 1/2 tsp. baking soda 1 1/2 c. quick cook (not instant) oats 1 c. packed light brown sugar 1/2 c. salted butter, softened 1 T. water
46 | Sign up for Daily Headlines from hottytoddy.com
Combine dates, sugar and water or orange juice in medium saucepan. Cook on medium heat, stirring frequently with a wooden spoon, until mixture thickens â€“ about 5 minutes. Stir in optional walnuts once thickened. Cool. Sift flour, salt and baking soda in a large bowl. Whisk in the oats and brown sugar until blended. Cut in the butter until mixture is crumbly. Sprinkle tablespoon of water over mixture and stir gently to moisten evenly. Mixture measures out to about 4 3/4 cups; divide in half. Spread half of mixture into a greased 9-by-13inch baking pan; pat lightly. Spread the date mixture evenly over the oats layer. Cover with remaining oat mixture. Pat lightly. Bake 35-40 minutes, until topping is lightly browned, turning pans after 20 minutes. Cool on a wire rack. Cut into bars when completely cooled. Yield: Up to 40 rectangular bars.
Date Nut Bread When preparing this column, I had attempted a newer version of date bread, but the results came out as a sticky dense dark mess that bubbled and failed to rise properly. Upon review, I realized Iâ€™d used salted butter instead of unsalted, had measured the dates improperly, and the recipe I was following had inadvertently omitted baking powder. The experience made me realize that one shouldnâ€™t mess with perfection. This classic date bread never fails if the directions are followed. 1 c. (a package) chopped, pitted dates 1/2 c. boiling water 1 1/2 c. all purpose flour 1 tsp. baking soda 1 tsp. salt 1 tsp. baking powder 1 egg, lightly beaten 1/2 c. light brown sugar, packed 1/2 c. chopped walnuts
Place dates in large nonreactive bowl. Pour boiling water over the dates and soak until it cools to room temperature Preheat oven to 350ËšF. Grease loaf pan and line with parchment. Grease parchment with shortening. Sift dry ingredients together and set aside. Beat egg in large bowl and mix in sugar. Add dates. Fold in flour to mixture in three parts until blended. Fold in walnuts. Pour into the loaf pan and bake about 60 minutes in preheated oven until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Loosely tent buttered foil over top of pan during last 10-15 minutes if needed, to prevent top from becoming too brown. Remove to wire rack to cool. Slice and serve with cream cheese, toasted or fresh. Visit hottytoddy.com for news, arts, sports and fun! | 47

and support the liquor stores that are in Oxford, but their dream for High Cotton is different than anything here.
High Cotton Wine and Spirits Warehouse Offers Largest Selection in Oxford
"My goal when creating High Cotton has been to build selection," Herrington said. "I want to offer the most diverse selection in Oxford and offer it at a price that encourages people to try new things."
LARGE By Amy Goodin Photo by Steve Vassallo
he highly anticipated High Cotton Wine and Spirits Warehouse has opened its doors to the public. With a floor space just shy of 5,000 square feet, High Cotton is not only the largest liquor store in Oxford but one of the largest in North Mississippi. Owners Aaron Herrington and Erik Richardson are longtime Oxford natives 48 | Sign up for Daily Headlines from hottytoddy.com
Herrington understands that this goal will not happen overnight. High Cotton has opened with a wide variety of items and will continue to stock new items on the shelves until the dream of the store is reached and customers can find any wine or liquor they are looking for in one place.
"We won't have every item we want or you're looking for in the store right away," Herrington said. "Our selection is already large and it will continue to grow. And if there is something you can get in Mississippi and we don't have it yet, we'll get it for you." Store manager Adam Havard is also excited about this new venture. He shares in the dream of creating a store where selection, variety and price are the best available in the area. "We're taking what has been done and making it even better," Havard said. "We want to offer Oxford something it doesn't already have." High Cotton is located in the shopping center on Jackson Ave., next to the new Rebel Rags entrance. The store officially opened its doors mid-September, and the grand opening and ribbon cutting ceremony occurred on Friday, Oct. 13, at 3:30 p.m.

The Picture Show Enjoy our “Reflections” post — one of many vignettes and stories featuring memories of days gone by. This installment is from Dottie Dewberry of Maben, Mississippi, as seen in “The Oxford So & So.” If you would like to contribute your own Reflections story, send it, along with photos, to firstname.lastname@example.org.
uring the 1950s on Friday night or a Saturday night the Sam Maxey family would load up in whatever truck had gas in it and off we would go to the “picture show.” Sometimes there might be seven people in the cab of the truck for a short three-mile trip to Artesia, Mississippi. If it was in the summertime, we kids rode in the back of the truck in the bed. If it got cold, we all sat up against the cab, hugging the quilt Mama would bring for the trip home. On the way down, when it was still warm, we would sit up on the side or sit on the tailgate. Today our parents would be fined or even arrested for letting us do such. None of us, fortunately, ever fell out or off. We would park on Front Street in front of the picture show. It was next to Mcllwain’s Hardware Store. Nothing was ever locked; for that matter, the keys were probably left in the ignition. For 15 cents you could watch the fi rst show. The second show would cost you another 15 cents. We only got to watch the fi rst one. Snow cones, popcorn and fountain Cokes
(remember, all drinks were called “Coke”) were a nickel each. There was no such thing as stadium seating; just rows of wooden seats all connected together. Th is way nobody could move them out of line. It really wasn’t a big place, but we had two sides with rows and rows of seats for all of us squirmy kids to sit in and watch the big screen. In the back (where you came in) was the movie reel up on a stand above our heads. Sometimes the reel’s fi lm strip would break and the picture show lady had to put it back together. I guess she used tape. Th is is when we all liked to make a big racket; just what she needed. Basically we were all good kids and still are good adults, but back then we liked to whistle and holler. The picture show lady would threaten to put us out because all of us thought we could make a Woody Woodpecker sound, Tarzan yells (Johnny Weissmuller) or Leo the Lion roar. We would all practice our yells and hollers, but not for long, though, because we DID NOT want to be put out. We did not do this all the time – only for Tarzan movies or for Woody Woodpecker.

We were just a bunch of country kids at the picture show, but it really is a wonder that she did not throw us all out. Yep, those were the “good ole days.” Our favorite movies were all of them! We really liked Roy Rogers and Dale Evans, Tarzan, Gene Autry, Johnny Mack Brown, The Lone Ranger, Hopalong Cassidy, Wild Bill Elliott, Randolph Scott, and John Wayne. When we went back to school in the fall, we always got the tablets (paper) with our favorite characters on the front. Sometimes we were lucky enough to get a book satchel and a movie star on the front. A book satchel would be called a book bag today. Ours had a neat little handle at the top – it reminds you of an attache case (briefcase). At the beginning of the show there was always a comedy: Woody Woodpecker, Daffy Duck, Wiley Coyote and Beep Beep, the Road Runner, Bugs Bunny, Elmer Fudd, Foghorn the White Leghorn. Those were the best. One year in Artesia, Mississippi, they had a special treat for us. George Francis “Gabby” Hayes (May 7, 1885 – February 9, 1969), who was an American radio, film, and television actor (or someone dressed up like him – what did we know?), came and talked to us. Hayes, in real life, was an intelligent, well-groomed and articulate 54 | Sign up for Daily Headlines from hottytoddy.com
man who was cast as a grizzled old codger who uttered phrases like “concern it,” “yer durn tootin,” “dadgummit,” “durn persnickety female,” and “young whippersnapper.” From 1935-1939 Hayes played the part of the sidekick to Hopalong Cassidy (William Boyd). We all thought he was fabulous. Soon we were all using his expressions. Dadgummit!! It was sad when the picture show place closed; we had to start going up to West
Point to the movies. Yep, we were up town then. It was a nice, long, cold ride back home in the bed of the truck. We all hunkered down under the quilt or in our coats and up against each other. It cost more at the movies but those were the good ole days in the South.
